This magnificent property is a rare find indeed! Located on the edge of Paderne in a small hamlet, just a 3 minute drive to the centre and all amenities, is this beautifully rebuilt traditional house and cottage annex. The property has been sympathetically restored, retaining much of the original character and quirkiness yet with all the comfort desired for modern living. Seemingly unassuming from the outside, yet once you step in it certainly has the "wow" factor.
Accommodation in the main house comprises as follows - from the entrance hallway there are 3 bedrooms, 1 en-suite and 2 with fitted wardrobes. There is a family bathroom also off the hallway, with bath and separate shower. The hallway has half height wall panelling, and stunning Portuguese style tiles on the floor.
The lounge and kitchen are open plan with double height ceiling and a large log burner. The kitchen has granite worktops, large breakfast bar, integrated washing machine, dish washer, double oven, built in microwave and induction hob. Part of this section of the house had to be rebuilt and the original stones were re-used to rebuild one wall, which is fully exposed and there are also exposed sections of the original stone on the existing walls. There are two patio doors from the lounge one to the rear and one to the side. In the lounge there is an open stairway leading to the mezzanine with a large dining table and an office area. A large window on the opposite wall to the mezzanine allows you to enjoy the view of the countryside to the rear. This area also has 2 large Velux windows.
From the mezzanine leads to the 4th bedroom and access to the roof terrace. There is also a cloak room with toilet and sink and storage area which houses the electric boiler. The property is already pre-installed for solar water heating which is being installed imminently.
The property benefits from underfloor heating through the hallway, master bedroom, family bathroom and throughout the lounge and kitchen area. This is powered from a heat source pump housed on the roof. All the bedrooms have air conditioning which provide heat and cool. There are UPVC double glazed windows throughout, apart from the Velux windows.
The property has two water meters one domestic supply and one agricultural for garden, pool use. There is also a well which collects water from the roof.
Outside we have a courtyard from the lounge. The courtyard overlooks the countryside to the rear, there is an outside kitchen with a large BBQ, a bread oven and a sink. To the side is a pergola which overlooks the garden. The garden has many mature trees including olive, carob, almond, bay, nespereira (loquat), pomegranate, a beautiful apricot tree and grape vine. There's a large lawn area as well as the terrace around the pool.
The pool is 8 x 4m, salt water with steps and a seat along the shallow end. Servicing the pool is an outside toilet and shower.
At the bottom of the garden is a large shed/workshop with power and the pool house. Here is also a parking area with electric gated entrance. There are 3 outside taps in various locations around the garden.
Just behind the house there is a outbuilding which was originally the kitchen and still has an original bread oven, indoor BBQ and smoker. This has power and houses the beer fridge and provides storage for the garden tools etc. There is a small garden at the rear of the house which has a lemon, peach and another nespereira tree.
The cottage annex is completely independent of the main house with its own private garden with BBQ, plunge pool and parking area. Comprising 2 bedrooms, both with en-suite shower rooms, fitted and equipped open plan kitchen with breakfast bar, lounge area with log burner, double patio doors to the private terrace and door to the side. As with the main house all windows are double glazed, the bedrooms are air conditioned and the property offers all home comforts.
The annex is on a separate electric supply and has its own water heater. This facilitates it being completely shut down when not in use. There is proven rental history and potential to generate a very healthy income.
As a Summer rental this area has so much to offer, as more people seem to be really looking for this type of accommodation as an alternative to a resort. Being on the outskirts of a village, with all amenities, a local café 50 metres away, completely private gardens and the beach and main resort of Albufeira is just a 15 minute drive. The walking routes in the area are exceptional with plenty of places to explore and enjoy.
Equally, this property would provide a perfect, tranquil retreat for a large family as a permanent home, with the annex as separate accommodation for family and friends.
Paderne is well equipped with 2 supermarkets, fruit & veg shop, pet shop, pay shop, pharmacy, school and health centre. There are many quality restaurants bars and cafes offering a real taste of village life. Paderne also offers many festas during the Summer, the Carnival in February, the amazing Medieval festival between Christmas and New Year, a growing White Night party, as well as many other events.
There is so much more to say about this property, such a special place but really needs to be seen to appreciate fully. A fabulous investment opportunity with huge potential. Early viewing recommended for this jewel!!
